This post marks the first of my podcast series, Gangland Wire -Crime Stories. After this first short explanation episode, the next 5 episodes will chronicle the 1970s gang war between the Nick Civella crime family and the upstart Spero brother’s faction. I hope this to be the beginning of a long lasting series of Kansas City true crime stories. Some will be cases I was personally involved with and others I research. Sometimes, I will be able to obtain interviews with actual participants.
I have to buy studio time and pay for archival material from the Kansas City Police Department. I have already started several Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from the Feds and I am required to pay for searching and digitizing the reports. If, you are entertained and enlightened by my true crime stories, please make a donation to this cause. It will be up to the listeners to keep this podcast on the air. I am looking for a sponsor, if you have any ideas, help me connect to a sponsor.
To make a donation, I have created a Paypal button on my “Shop” page. Click on the paypal button and this takes you to the Paypal page. If you have a Paypal account you can designate an amount to donate from that account. If you do not have a Paypal account, go to the Paypal page and look at the section just below the words “forgot email of password?” Click on the sentence, ” Pay with a debit or credit card, or PayPal Credit.” This takes the user to a section that allows them to use a credit card. Rest assured, your credit card information is as well protected by Paypal as Amazon or any other major online store.
